Ok good. I was thinking about this early this morning when I couldn't sleep, and I was like, Bollocks I missed the contest!

I got this recipe from Real Simple, and have modified it slightly. This is a delicious way to use zucchini, which as you know is plentiful during the summer. And it's healthy because you don't use much cheese; you use just enough feta to give the dish a nice kick.

Feta Chicken with Zucchini

Serves 4

1 lemon
4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3-4 small zucchini
2 T olive oil
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
3 oz feta cheese (half of an Athenos container)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle 1 T oil in bottom of roaster pan. Thinly slice the lemon. Spread half over the bottom of the pan, and put half in a medium bowl. Slice the zucchini lengthwise, then into 1/4 - 1/2-inch half-moon slices. Add to bowl, along with remaining T of oil and salt & pepper. Toss. Place chicken breasts in one layer in center of pan and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Spread zucchini/lemon mixture around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle feta all over. Bake 40-45 minutes. You might want to cover with foil for the last 5-10 minutes if your feta is browning quickly.

Macaroni and Cheese

Buy a box of Macaroni and Cheese (Kraft, unless on a budget, then Western Family)

Follow directions on box.

Eat in a bowl.

Seriously, I'm doing the best I can.
